So, my Achilles still hurts. I hiked to Annette Lake yesterday with a couple of old friends. According to WTA, it’s 1800 feet of elevation gain, but the readout on my GPS watch says 1,982 feet. Whatever it was, it was too many.
I don’t remember any point in particular at which my Achilles started to hurt, but over time a nagging pain developed. This wasn’t really unexpected. I probably shouldn’t have gone, but I was meeting two friends I hadn’t seen in two years and didn’t want to not see them.
I’m even supposed to start a mountaineering training program tomorrow (lol!). Looks like it’s going to be more of a biking program than a mountaineering program. At the same time, I’m wondering if I just screwed up my PRP recovery so much that it’s a lost cause and I should just plan for another procedure next fall. Good questions for a doctor. I’ll let y’all know what he says.
